Am loving the fact that Dizzee is at no. 1; this whole thing he's got going on with Tinchy ( who has had two number ones this year) where they're tryna go to the top spot with each song, means that the latter now has to go and get his third, in order to keep up. Competition makes life (and music) interesting. Love it. Love it. Love it.

16: Daniel Merriweather - Love & War

17: Killers - Day & Age

18: Athlete - Black Swan

19: Pink - Funhouse

20: Vera Lynn - We'll Meet Again ( The Very Best Of)

We'll see if next week Dizzee can manage to hang on to the top spot or if, as I'm predicting, Sugababes' Get Sexy will steal it from him...

Bad Boys III Practically Confirmed

Bad Boys III Practically Confirmed

Regardless of all the haters and naysayers back in the 03, we personally lurved Bad Boys II; thought it was funnier than the first, had biggger explosions (thanx, Michael Bay), and the use of 'Bad Boys, bad boys, what you gonna do? What you gonna do when they come for you...' hil-a-rious...

So, having just discovered that III is in the works, with The Hollywood Reporter stating earlier that "all parties have expressed a willingness to return if a story can be hammered out", we couldn't be happier or more ready to pre-order tickets... something we only did for The Dark Knight.

Not that we're saying that Bad Boys III will be as good as TDK, because, come on, let's be real; but that's just how long we've been waiting for a confirmation - since we first heard whispers about it back in 05.

Peter Craig - who has recently been working on a script for a Cowboy Bebop adaptation with Keanu Reeves playing Spike (yeah, we don't know who the Hell that is, either) - is working on the script, and Michael Bay has already said that he'd be more than willing to return if Martin and Will did...

It isn't the only sequel in the works for Will Smith, though. Remember Men In Black II? It was, by a clear mile, nowhere near as good as the first (sorry, Will, we love you like fat kids love cake, but it's true); so, we always thought that the team would need to rectify the situation by doing another sequel. And, apparently, so did they as Men In Black III is due out in the '11...

Thank God.

Now, all we're waiting for are details of the plotlines...

(sorry, we couldn't resist) post as soon as we hear anything...

The Men Who Stare At Goats Trailer

The Men Who Stare At Goats Trailer

The latest George Clooney vehicle The Men Who Stare At Goats has just released a trailer, with the actual movie out 22nd January 2010. Despite the fact that we can't help but be distracted by Ewen McGregor's terrible American accent (which must be, singlehandedly, one of the worst we've ever heard), we can't lie that the trailer alone makes us LOL, with some vair hil-a-rious moments.

With Clooney as a 'Jedi-warrior' convinced he can kill goats with just the power of his mind ( see 1:23), the movie's actually looking a hella lot better than we thought it would be when we first heard about it... but, then again, considering our original opinion, that may not be saying much...

However, we may just have another Burn After Reading on our hands...


VERDICT: Ghostface Killah's Insane New Album Cover

This cover for Ghostface Killah's new album Ghostdini: Wizard of Poetry is crazy - in the best way possible. One of the best we've seen in a hella long time. It's creative and so funny, it's not even funny anymore. Shows exactly why Ghostface is an innovator, not an imitator.

Now, all we need is an album as sick as it's cover...


Kim Kardashian YRB Mag Shoot

VERDICT: Kim Kardashian YRB Mag Shoot

Needless to say, we were very surprised by the v. Haute Couture Kim K that arrived in our inbox just a couple of minutes ago. This is nothing like her usual -shall we say- more busty look.

However, she is working it like the rent is due tomorrow (to quote Mr Jay on ANTM). The chic bob is both futuristic and sexy; something that is quite hard to pull of for some ( we won't mention any names, but, Christina Aguilera in that Lady-Gaga-Rip-Off, Keeps Getting Better). She is looking FI-ER-CE in that red dress, and the hair accessory she's rocking looks so this season...
We love. Love. Love.

VERDICT: 9.5/10

DJ AM Found Dead In NYC

DJ AM Found Dead In NYC

DJ AM was found dead Friday morning in his NYC appartment (and, according to the New York Post, surrounded by drug paraphernalia. If this is indeed true, then it couldn't be any more tragic. Drugs have taken far too many people this year, the late King Of Pop being one of them) , NY Fire Department has confirmed. After having survived a devastating plane crash just last year, he recently shot a series for MTV entitled Gone Too Far about his past substance abuse.

He was just 36- way too young for this to happen.

New VH1 Divas Posters...

VH1 Divas Posters

Here are the VH1 Divas promo posters for the upcoming event on 17th September. It goes without saying that we're gonna be glued to our TV sets watching it, so we'll just get right down to what really matters. What we think of the shots.

Miley - Photoshopped the hell out of. In our opinion, she is, at best 3/10 (AKA 'butters'). Also can't stand her famewhore of a father- who had the nerve to call his daughter's stripper-poling performance at the Teen Choice Awards ', 'art'. Art, our arse. And don't even get us started on those now infamous Vanity Fair pics. What's next, Miley? A sex tape?

Hilary - love her. Have always loved her. Can't wait to see her in Season 3 of Gossip Girl.

Leona - Arguably one of the best sangers (yes, sangers) out there right now. Anyone who wants to argue can go listen to Bleeding Love. And then shut up.

Kelly Clarkson - like her. Except for the photoshop. Can't noone call this chick pretty. Even with all the miracles computers can work nowadays, she still only ever looks a 4/10 at best. And that just doesn't quite cut it. Is v. lucky she can sing her arse off, cause ya'll know this is (sadly) an industry based primarily on looks. Can't nobody tell us that if Cassie and Rihanna looked like Jay Z's sisters they'd be signed.

Still waiting for Jordin Sparks' poster. Will post it as soon as it's released.


HIT OR MISS: She Wants To Know What Love Is

Mariah's New Single: I Want To Know What Love Is

Naturally, we doubted Perez's verdict that this isn't a hit... and it comes as no surprise that he doesn't like it. We all know Perez can't stand any female artist that

a) is more fabulous than him


b) couldn't care less what he thinks...

So it stands to reason that he practically hates this. Besides, his opinion hardly counts.

Moving on swiftly, we ( along with most people, apparently) think that her cover of I Want To Know What Love Is is a smash, and is sure to spark a tear in the eye of even the most sombre. With her soaring vocals and the perfectly used choir at the end, we think it's reminiscent ( in a sick way, bien sur) of 90's Mariah... which we personally love just as much as Noughties Mariah.

But, why take our word for it (even though that is also ideal)? Listen for yourselves...

VERDICT: New New Moon Pics...

Brand New Volturi Pics Just Released...

Hmm... we're still making up our minds about these.
While it's true they all look more than creepy enough to be the infamous Volturi family, they just seem a bit... weird. Like there's something a bit off. But maybe that's the point, we dunno.
From top to bottom: Jamie Campbell Bower as Caius
Christopher Heyerdahl as Marcus
Michael Sheen as Aro
Cameron Bright as Alec
Dakota Fanning as his twin sister Jane
Verdict ( so far, anyway) : 7/10

Queen B To Perform At The VMAs

Queen B is to take the stage once again at the VMAs, MTV has announced. Naturally, as soon as we first heard this (which was, thanks to our sources, about a week ago), we thanked God that this year's ceremony seems to be one of the best ones yet.

She's sure to top both of her last two solo VMA performances with a rendition of hit Sweet Dreams, and, with her 9 noms, is certain to take home at least Video Of The Year and Best Female Video.

All the rest of you wannaBEes (Keri Hilson, to name but one) fall back. There ain't no one doin it quite like B right now, and ain't none of you even close.

Verdict : Rihanna's Vogue Italia Cover

VERDICT: Rihanna's Vogue Italia Cover

Despite the fact that we think Rihanna's a whole lot of 'no talent but good songs with some looks', we can't deny that she looks FIERCE on this cover...

She's definitely serving it. So, stick to the modelling from now on, sweetie, and leave the singing to those that do it best.

But, all that airbrushing? Seriously? You dun know Rhi Rhi's legs ain't quite dat skinny. Just who they trying to fool?

Overall? 8/10

OMG. He did NOT just say that...

NO, NO, NO...

We're shocked...

Completely Shocked...

The stupider half of Speidi (yeah, we know you're having difficulty working it out... it's Spencer Pratt, this time) has called his wife 'the new, modern-day, 2010 Michael Jackson'.

Yes. He really went that far.

After Heidi's now infamously awful bomb of a performance on Miss Universe, we had hoped that they would both just crawl under a stone and leave us alone. This was sadly not the case. Even after she was universally PANNED by everyone this side of the Dalai Lama ( we personally thought it was the WORST performance we have seen since Cassie's BET debacle), they had the nerve to act like it was reminiscent of Britney's kick-arse 2000 VMA performance (which we clocked as soon as we saw Heidi's wannabe nude coloured costume). Which is a disgrace in and of itself, because, despite the fact that many think Britney doesn't exactly have the best voice, can't nobody say that the Princess of Pop doesn't KILL it when it comes to performing (see her 2001 VMA Slave 4 U performance... nuff said).

However, just today, we discovered that he has now dubbed her the MJ of next year.

Not only is this tasteless and highly inaproppriate because of the King Of Pop's recent passing, but we also wondered just how delusional Spencer must be. Heidi 'I-Can't-Hold-A-Note' Montag (yeah, she just aint into Spencer enough to have his surname anymore) of the wack song Body Language equal MJ of Beat It, Thriller, Bad, Black and White, You Are Not Alone... I could go on.

It's just a joke.

A very unfunny joke.

But a joke all the same.

All we can hope is that this is just a pathetic attempt to garner her some much-needed publicity. But even if that is the case, it just makes it even more clear just how stupid Spencer is. Comparing your wife to the greatest entertainer of all time just invites ridicule and even more widespread derision, you idiot. You're not doing her any favours by blabbing your mouth left, right and centre. Just shut up and remove your desperate arse from anywhere we may see you.

All we can be thankful for is that their 15 minutes is almost up.

2 minutes, 13 seconds and counting...

( - if case u haven't seen it...)
